I've got a torture film and a GTO

You've got to admit that Iggy had America nailed.

Way before Abu Ghraib and Gitmo.

But you know where he got it wrong?

The GTO.

Torture lives but the GTO is dead.

That latest iteration of the GTO, some unseemly import from Australia, didn't exactly rain glory on the brand.

From the early days of the 389 tri-power, the GTO meant something. It symbolized an insecure America showing the bulge in her pants.

The Ruskies had put a man into orbit before America. They were way ahead of us in the missile race, or so we were lead to believe.

But we had the GTO and they had what?

The GTO let America feel good about America long before Ronald Reagan whupped the Commies in Grenada.

Fifty years later the GTO is dead.

And Obama can't figure out how to close Gitmo.
